I CALL TO WITNESS those who dive and drag
And those who undo the bonds gently
And those who glide swimmingly
Then outpace the others swiftl
And direct affairs by command
The day the convulsive (first blast) shatters convulsivel
Followed by the second blast
Hearts will pound loudly on that day
Eyes be lowered in submission
They say: "Shall we go back to our original stat
After having turned to carious bones?"
They say: "Then this returning will be a dead loss."
It will only be a single blast
And they will wake up suddenly
Has the story of Moses come to yo
When his Lord called to him in Tuwa's holy vale
"Go to the Pharaoh who has become refractory
And say: 'Would you like to grow (in virtue)
Then I will guide you to your Lord that you may come to fear Him.'"
So he showed him the greater sign
But (the Pharaoh) disavowed and disobeyed
Then he turned away, deliberating
And assembled (his council) and proclaimed
Saying: "I am alone your lord, the highest of them all."
So God seized him for the punishment of the Hereafter and this world
Truly there is a lesson in this for those who fear (the consequences)
Are you more difficult to create or the heavens? He built it
Raised it high, proportioned it
Gave darkness to its night, and brightness to its day
And afterwards spread out the earth
He brought out its water and its pastures from it
And stabilized the mountain
As convenience for you and your cattle
When the great calamity comes
The day when man remembers all that he had done
And Hell made visible to him who can see
Then he who had been rebelliou
And who preferred the life of the world
Will surely have Hell for his abode
But he who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained his self from vain desires
Will surely have Paradise for abode
They ask you: "When will the Hour be? When is its time fixed?"
What do you have to do with explaining it
The extent of its knowledge goes to your Lord
Your duty is only to warn him who fears it
The day they see it, it will seem they had stayed in the world but only an evening or its turning into dawn
